And yes, it comes with gold handcuffs.

The new Fifty Shades of Grey movie and its timely release on February 13 is bringing out all sorts of bondage-themed Valentine’s Day promotions. Most are cheap, both literally and figuratively, like CityPerch‘s Red Room of Pain cocktail served with fuzzy red handcuffs. Now there’s a special only the Christian Greys of the world can afford: a $1,500 meal from DC’s Farm to Feast Catering, complete with gold-plated handcuffs, a leather riding whip, and a wearable chocolate fondue dessert.

The deluxe package also includes a four-course menu—no one likes being chained to a bed on an empty stomach—which includes the likes of roast squash soup with “lick-worthy” glazed bananas, “tied up” duck breast, and “steamy” roast short ribs in fig gravy.

Anyone who wants to experiment without the pain of spending more than a grand for delivery can opt for the menu itself ($200), or the food plus a restraint kit package ($300). Alternatively, for $1,500, you could take your date to MiniBar and slap him/her in the face with the spare change. Happy Valentine’s Day!
